On The Gram: The Internet Casts Stacey Dash Back To The Fire From Which She Came With Memes!

Stacey Dash

If Stacey Dash thought she was going to get away, unscathed from her ridiculous comments she was sadly mistaken. The internet plays no games when you say something that’s just outright stupid. The clueless actress and yes the pun is indeed intended, spoke on Jada Pinkett-Smith and Spike Lee’s decision to skip The Oscars due to the outrage of the awards show lack of diversity. What really ruffled everyone’s feathers was when Dash said that Black History Month, BET and The Image Awards are forms of segregation.

BET and Stephen Hill quickly snapped back at Dash on Instagram:

Thus opening the flood gates to the well deserved slander that came her way. Peep the hilarious memes directed towards Dash in the gallery below.

unnamed-1

The first sneak peek trailer of BET’s “Being Mary Jane” Season 3 starring Gabrielle Union is here!

The third season of Being Mary Jane will find our favorite news anchor struggling to piece her life back together after the devastating car accident in last season’s finale. In an effort to move on after the crash, Mary Jane will cut ties with the two people responsible for the incident, her longtime best friend, Lisa, and her on-and-off-again ex-boyfriend, David. However, the driver of the other car, a down-on-her-luck bookstore owner named Cecilia, will have other plans. Meanwhile, Mary Jane finds herself sidelined at work when a beautiful young Latina anchor, Marisol, shines as her replacement, while she is out on medical leave.  However, Mary Jane finds a way to save her job as Primetime anchor, but soon after leads herself to a “life cleanse” which causes her to rethink her actions.  Yet just as things are finally looking up for her, a tragedy in the family will throw her world into chaos once more.
“BEING MARY JANE” is created and executive produced by Mara Brock Akil; executive produced by Salim Akil and Gabrielle Union. Co-Executive Producers Devon Shepard; Claire Brown and Jeff Morrone. Veteran actors, Richard Roundtree and Margaret Avery, reprise their roles along with a stellar cast that includes Lisa Vidal, Richard Brooks, Raven Goodwin, B.J.
